"Thanks to AMU and ambulance service"

About: Arrowe Park Hospital / General medicine North West Ambulance Service NHS Trust / Emergency ambulance

(as a relative),

My Dad was brought in to AMU, by ambulance, who were absolutely fabulous and couldn't do enough to help my mum, he had a very nasty infection and was very confused and barely conscious. The staff couldn't do enough for him and treated him with so much dignity and respect. They were very quick in getting him assessed and giving him antibiotics and fluids, they also explained everything they were doing and were so thorough in their checks. We cannot thank them enough for helping us and my Dad in what was a very emotional and scary situation. We thank you all with all our hearts.

It was also very pleasing to hear how they looked after your Mum and helped to reassure her at such a frightening time.

We hope that your Dad is now on the road to recovery and would like to wish him all the best for the future.
